Our Older Adult Ministry is a lively group of individuals ages 55+ who we call GADABOUTS! And we love to gad-a-bout! Karen Wood keeps this group busy with activities each month. Join us and see what we’re about!


Contact Karen E. Wood for any questions or details on events.

We normally have a potluck the first Thursday of every month at 12:00 PM in the church commons.

June 6th at noon will be the next Gadabouts Potluck held in the Church Commons. I will be out of town, but Jane Rufener has graciously offered to lead with Jane Ehly and Mae Wilkins helping also. Please give them all the help you can.

Bring your favorite dish to share, bring a friend, bring your hugs and smiles. I look forward to seeing you there.

July 14th NOT July 4th at noon will be our next Potluck

Lunch dates are subject to change.

Normally the third Thursday of every month we go somewhere. These are day trips.


I have the revised Outings List for 2019. For a copy, please contact Karen.

June 20th, Gadabouts were going to Sweetwater, but we have had to cancel. Instead, we will meet at the Olive Garden at 11:30am. Please contact Karen Wood for reservations.

July 18th, we are going someplace new, Shoebooties in Murphy, NC. Have heard good things about this restaurant. Should be a fun trip. After eating, we can visit some of the local shops. Please contact Karen for reservations on the bus.

Please, contact Karen to reserve your seat on the bus for all outings.

Keep checking back for more information.

Some of our favorite trips include: We use the church buses for transportation unless otherwise noted.
